I take it none of you foodies have been to Husk (yet)?

Nah, but I've heard it is good. But lots and lots of hype, which = lots and lots of crowds.
It already takes an act of Congress to get me downtown, then to find parking and all that, and wait. and wait. and wait.
Lazy outfielders are what we are, foraging in the hinterlands, lol.
No foodie am I. Beer drinker who eats at the local Mexican 2x a week is what I am!

Nash, when you come back, check out the new places up on Morrison--Edmund's Oast is the latest "see and be seen", though I took one look at the crowd and headed up to Tattooed Moose. Lots of beer themed places opening up, and quite a few new breweries if you are into that sort of thing.
I will have to check out the Morrison area.

Oak was pretty OK - but I'm with you on that one, not on my dime. I enjoyed SNOB, High Cotton, and Cypress (repeatedly) enough to pay for it. :-)

And definitely agree on the BBQ. My two favorite places were up in North Charleston, believe it or not. One was a little shack that had the pigs roasting out back; the other was an "upscale" diner that had a mustard sauce that was to die for.

A last item about High Cotton...the Sunday Brunch is excellent and reasonably priced.

When we were there a year ago, we had dinner at the Shemcreek Bar & Grill in Mt. Pleasant. It was just ok, nothing to write home about.

We also had a very nice late afternoon lunch on the back patio at the Blind Tiger Pub a short walk from The Calhoun Mansion.

We ate at a Sticky Fingers in Summerville on our way to Charleston. We liked it but are pretty easy to please when it comes to food and are my no means a BBQ connoisseur.
